her about planting the vines, and naming them, and also told which one had come up first. And she says "O well, I guess George loves you the best." And I guess so too, if he loves me at all. As he talks a heap better and more to me than either of you two. Goodnight until morning, and I will finish then, as all are asleep and forgot about it.
May 8th, 1879
Mr. J. C. Brewer
Ever dear friend,
After waiting with some impatience I was again visited by one of your very interesting missives, which proved to be the one that is appreciated above all of the rest that I have ever received from you. Prized higher because it came as a peacemaker to right up all wrongs and to settle all misunderstandings that have acquainted themselves with us, just for the purpose of creating a disturbance between us. I can truly say that I freely forgive, and will forget entirely every thing that has been requested of me. I will keep the letter
